Well it is a very good question and quite complicated.
First thing to understand is that Olympiakos is from the port, Piraeus, which is a separate city to Athens. Piraeus now is actually joined to Athens because of Athens' huge urban growth, but they are separate places/cities. Here is Piraeus - it is an exceptionally urban area - as is Athens:
Now Athens is divided in 3 big clubs and several smaller ones. The big three are AEK (huge following, founded by Greek refugees from modern day Turkey), PAO (traditional down town Athens club based in the centre of the city and quite elitist) and Olympiakos (working class club from Piraeus that is now the biggest in the country). The Smaller clubs are Panionios, Apollon Smyrnis (both founded by Greek refugees from Turkey), Atromitos and Kalithea. Many smaller clubs are operated by what I can only describe as mafia bosses..
AEK fans are very crazy and quite left wing. Their hooligans, Original 21, are extremely stupid and violent. They have many many fans. They represent the memory of Byzantium.
PAO fans are simply stupid fat idiots who think they are intellectual. Their philosophy in life is never admitting they have lost game because they were shit..only because the game was fixed. They are very complexed.
Olympiakos have the most fans in Greece and are the best run team with the best stadium, training facilities and fans. We always spend more than other teams on players.
All big three create unique atmospheres in the stadiums which are famous around the world.
